Hotels in Oman include acclaimed 5-star properties and comfortable In-Town properties – here are some of our preferred hotels - perhaps they have great facilities, style we like or allow us to offer you an experience to remember of course we include our own private Desert Camp. Not all serve Alcohol - if you must have Alcohol available please specify that when contacting us so we can exclude the hotels which do not offer it.

We visit these hotels on a regular basis; away from Muscat we have stayed in each hotel. While bedrooms are important in a hotel the facilities and staff can also be critical to the enjoyment of a stay, our regular visits allow us to make informed suggestions.
Japengo Restaurant Muscat

Naturally, as we live in Oman we have eaten in all these hotels and an extraordinary range of restaurants away from the hotels. Our blog does include many of the places we have eaten in – for location in Muscat few can match Japengo which is also good for people watching at night. Away from Muscat, the Al Rashidi is one we have been asked by regular guests to make a 200km journey so that they may enjoy its Rice Biryani in surroundings that, like many of our favourite ‘local’ restaurants, were ordinary in the extreme.

Al Bustan Palace Hotel Muscat

Al Bustan Palace is the doyenne of luxury hotels in Muscat. Set on its own private beach and extensive formal and natural grounds the setting is magnificent. We have known many of the staff for 23 years and they provide continuity despite the recent change of management to the Ritz-Carlton group. This is a hotel with facilities which can deal with 6 heads of state in residence at one time, and it is an experience to enjoy even if only for a night.

The Chedi Hotel Muscat

The Chedi has built up a unique position in Muscat’s hotels. Its architecture is simple and uncluttered its ideal for couples who wish to ‘chill out’ we believe the new spa will add to its appeal. Like the hotel The Restaurant is award winning and is spoken of as the best in Muscat.

Our tours can form the core of an extended holiday in Oman - from meeting you at Muscat Airport and booking your Muscat Hotel to returning you again to the airport we can organise your complete holiday in Oman.

Shangri-la Al-Waha Al-Bandar A-Husn Muscat

Shangri-La’s Barr Al Jissah Resort is three hotels, which offer the greatest range of facilities of the hotels in Oman including 19 places to enjoy meals and drinks, we like Bait Al Bahar seafood restaurant is ideal venue to enjoy the sunset on the beach and overlooking the resort Sultanah offers stylish a la carte dining. We like to suggest this resort for a few days after a tour of northern Oman with us

Al Waha Hotel which can offer supervised child facilities allows parents to have time to relax while Al Husn Hotel restricts the use of many of its facilities to people 16 years and older which allows those with no children to also relax. Connecting the two hotels is the third, Al Bandar Hotel, which offers a range of services that make it very popular for business and conferences.

City Seasons Hotel Muscat

Set in a mixed residential and commercial area Muscat’s City Seasons Hotel is a spacious hotel. Its ideal for a couple of nights in Muscat especially if visiting to leave on a tour of Oman shortly after arrival. This recently opened hotel is fortunate to have staff have joined this hotel from prestigious organisations such as Al Bustan Palace and the Jumerah group.



Frankincense Tree Oman

In Oman’s Land of Frankincense in the far south of Oman the hotels are not as distinctive but include a couple which offer a fine beach front experience.

Marriott Hotel Mirbat

The Marriott with probably the largest pool in Oman is located in an isolated location with a beach of soft white sand and interesting rock pools. The Arabian Sea here has an unusual mixture of tropical Corals and, after the summer Khareef cold water, Kelp which creates unusual Scuba Diving conditions. When we stayed, we found the far left of the beach the best for swimming from. This hotel is ideal for simply relaxing in for a few days or longer after a tour of Oman with Arabesque.


Hilton Hotel Salalah

The Hilton is convenient for the town of Salalah. The location close to the new Free Trade Zone & Port makes it popular for business visitors; however its service and style make it comfortable for a short stay during a tour of southern Oman and Salalah with us. The beach, though not private, stretches far beyond the hotel and is soft sand and occasional creeks with Mangrove.

Arabesque's Private Camp

Ideal for a single night in the desert or to enable a tour in Oman to travel through remote locations our own mobile camps offer you the pleasure of an isolated location. They are private to you and your travelling companions. We offer a variety of styles which we hope will allow any of our guests to enjoy the Oman few people experience.

Golden Tulip Hotel Nizwa

The Golden Tulip in Nizwa is a spacious hotel established around a series of courtyards. With comfortable bedrooms, its original guests were Omani government ministers. Its dinners held around the swimming pool make it a welcome end to a day touring the Nizwa region.



Al Diyar Hotel is a simple property which we use on some of our budget programs in Oman. With comfortable bedrooms and shower the hotel has a small pool and simple restaurant .

Sahab Hotel Oman

High in the northern mountains the Sahab hotels location offers a genuinely cool atmosphere making it a good base for our tours in Oman at any time of year. The owner lives in a small village a few moments away. The rooms are spread in an arc with views over the agricultural terraces of villages that grow fruit, grain and roses.


Within the Turtle watching reserve this small hotel at Ras al Jinz is ideal if you wish to watch both evening and pre-dawn Turtle visits. The rooms are simply furnished with private showers. The dining room timings are organised to slot in with the timings for turtle visits.

Turtle Beach Resort Oman

With a small beach in an inlet which almost as far east as its possible to get in Oman the Turtle Beach Resort comprises simple rooms. With shared bathrooms the atmosphere is informal and relaxed, ideal for a family tour of Oman if they, though interested in watching Turtles lay eggs, are principally interested in a general and relaxing visit to Oman.
